Lady Gaga and Al Roker take Polar Plunge in Chicago

The fourth annual Polar Plunge for Special Olympics Utah returns to St. George this Saturday at the St. George City Pool at 10 a.m. It's an opportunity to support the athletes by taking a dip into frigid IL waters.

"Just to jump in and get as deep in the water as you can because I feel if you go to the Polar Plunge, you've got to get all the way in there", Justin Sullivan, a participant, said. The West Chicago team, captained by Detective Robbi Peterson, will take part March 6 at Loon Lake in Silver Springs State Park in Yorkville.

The event raises money for Special Olympics Kentucky and its 7,400 athletes.

Funds raised by the Polar Bear Plunge benefit thousands of children and adults in Utah with intellectual disabilities.

Doc's Cantina hosted the Polar Plunge.
